Bio and Links
Bio Photo I give permission to use any picture I have taken for Find a Grave for use for other programs, websites or genealogical purposes. After all..that's why we take the pictures, so people can use them for their families.

I have been working on discovering my dead relatives for over 30 years. Now that I have retired I even have time to spend on new discoveries. I also enjoy going out to local cemeteries to fill photo requests. If I create a page which you would like to manage, just let me know and I'll be happy to transfer it to you.

Gravestone of LTJG KE Norris
Mary Arvidson, Many thanks for your picture of the gravestone of Vietnam War Fallen Hero LTJG Kenneth E. Norris (F-a-G # 116542451). FYI, since he joined the Navy while he was in Alexandria, VA and his Home-of-Record is listed as such, LTJG Norris's name is on the city's Vietnam War Veterans Memorial (dedicated in 2002). Sadly, since his parents moved from Alexandria decades ago, the FoRV don't believe his parents were ever aware that their son's ultimate sacrifice is remembered with his name chiseled into stone beneath a Gold Star at the CPT Rocky Versace Plaza and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Regards, FoRV

Earl Norris
Thanks for the info on Virginia & Earl Norris. I added a memorial for Earl so that you can add your pic. So sad their son died so young in the war.

I was wondering if I could manage a relative's Memorial # 137632853. Thank you for establishing it!

RE: St Adalbert Cemetery-Marye Wierzbicki gravesite
Hi Mary,
Ah, too bad the database isnít online. It sounds useful, but Iím hours away from Chicago.
So you can, from any Archdiocese cemetery kiosk, access records from all of the Archdiocese cemeteries, not only from that particular cemetery? That would be handy.
Say, if thatís the way it works, and if you find yourself near one of those kiosks, could you do me a favor and run a search? Iím trying to track down the burial of my great-grandmotherís sister. I donít know when she died or where she was buried, but her family was Catholic and she had heavy ties to Chicago.
The womanís name was Francisca Arendziak Potusalski (wife of Joseph Potusalski, mother of Ladislaus Potusalski, and mother-in-law of Clara Fialkowska Potusalski). I know no useful details about her other than that she was born in Poland (presumably Russian-controlled Poland) probably around the 1880ís, her son (Ladislaus) was born in Chicago on 1904-05-14, and that he got married in Gary, IN, on 1926-01-27.
She is one of the Arendziak siblings I know least about, but Iíd love to know more, and Iíd love to be able to create a FindAGrave memorial for her.
Let me know if you are able to look her up and what you find, if anything.
And thank you for all of your help, Mary. I do appreciate it.
Take care, and have a great day,
~Mark Rucinski
